‘Corporate Social Entrepreneurship’ discusses the concept of corporate social entrepreneurship (CSE), a process aimed at enabling business to develop more advanced and powerful forms of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). The paper argues that CSE is not about managing existing operations or CSR programmes - it is about creating disruptive change in the pursuit of new opportunities. It combines the willingness and desire to create joint economic and social value with the entrepreneurial redesign, systems development, and action necessary to carry it out. CSE constitutes fundamental change that can be particularly threatening and resisted, as it pushes the corporation’s actions more broadly and deeply into the social value creation area where the firm’s experiences and skill sets are less developed.
